I miss my trusty spray can. Why? Because I can’t spray paint anything in the depths of the Canadian winter. It’s too cold to spray paint outside (the paint won’t set) and I don’t want to paint inside because it smells up the whole house. I know this because I tried spray painting in the basement once and the fumes were so strong, I’d practically be high after a two-minute run downstairs to get something.
Here is the latest addition to my silver collection:
This find is a good example of how you have to open your eyes at the thrift store, like I described in my how to be a thrift-shopping wizard tips. I had to stand back and really look for a moment, until my curiosity was peaked by this non-descript box, shoved to the back of the shelf behind a bunch of knick knacks.
I opened the box and found this delightfully shiny package.
The little bling-loving girl inside me gasped. Oh the sparkle! I’ve found treasure! For $4.99!
The stand didn’t even need any polishing at all. It was already all shiny and brand new. And I LOVE the big round handle at the top. It’s so elegant!
In case you’re curious, the bottom is not stamped, it just has a sticker on it.
Oh yes, my friend. I’ll be filling that stand up with treats for Christmas. Gingerbread cookies, butter tarts and shortbread cookies, oh my! Wanna come over? I’ll share!
